2000 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 2dr Hatchback
Fun car to drive, has a lot of pep.
but i will not be getting another Beetle. And
after 2 years of ownership (we bought it brand
new with hardly any miles on it) i am ready to give
it up. mechanically it is sound...but for a 2 year
old car lots of little things have gone wrong with
it as soon as we drove it off the lot. The
drivers side window we were told is a 'known
problem' with Beetles. Also al of the face
plates on the interior are coming away and
becoming loose. the rear hatch almost never
releases on the 1st try...usually it takes 3-5 tries
before it will release.
looks very cute, Nippy little car. very fun to
Work on the interior... the interior design is nice,
but it does not stand up to normal wear and tear.
Within 2 years things are starting to fall off.
